... Picasso Museum. We both agreed that his early
works were much better than his cubism and impressionist works, although this
is not what he is famous for. Then we did a VERY long walk from there up to
Castle Montjuic (not just long, but up a mountain, although through some very
nice gardens). The castle gives amazing views out to the ocean and over the
